    How To: make a changing background SVG

    Advertisement



    Ever wanted to know how to make an SVG that changes background screens as you switch between icons?
    well I have figured out how to do exactly that...

    I'd like to make a nice easy to understand write up...
    at least I hope it's easy to understand
    in this tutorial I am going to assume that you already know a couple of things about composer, including: making theme buttons, animating them, exporting SVG's and adding the SVG's to theme builder.

    if you have any questions please feel free to ask


    first make your theme button and animate it as you wish, I am doing a theme right now where the theme buttons will come from the corners and move to the middle of the screen.

    all you need to do is "import" the image you want with the animation of the theme button (in edit mode)




    make sure the image is visible in the focus in state and the action state and non-visible in the other 2 states.




    do the same for all of your other buttons (making the appropriate changes to the background images for each individual theme button) and export then add to theme builder...
    it's really very easy.
    I hope that this made sense I went through 3 different versions of this tutorial... I hope this makes sense.
    I'm stressed out right now am am trying to do this to take my mind off of things but it does not seemed to have worked... of course!
    if I need to I will re-phrase I will, just ask!
    but hope this helps someone
